Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School has maintained its Outstanding rating following an OFSTED inspection in November 2021.
The school caters for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs who use services at the Bethlem and Maudsley hospitals. This was the first inspection since the Covid-19 pandemic began.
The report found the school has very high expectations for pupils, including for their behaviour, and said families and pupils very much appreciate the work of staff. Inspectors also praised the consistency and stability that the school provides at a key moment in their lives.
John Ivens, Executive Headteacher, Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School, said: “This is the third 'Outstanding', inspection that the school has had in a row. The result is a testament to how the staff and the students work together - finding a path to a happier future."
David Bradley, Chief Executive, said: “Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School and the staff who work there are a real asset to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
“I would like to pass on my congratulations to the school’s leaders who have been praised in the report for their excellent subject knowledge and the stability the school provides at this significant moment for pupils.”
The Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People is set to open its doors in 2023. It will be the new home to the Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School.
